    I had to chuckle when I saw those wage rates. Then I remembered that there really are places where you can buy a three bedroom home for 60 k.

    $18 to $22/hr is pretty damn good, considering a guy with 2 years of experience doesn't know the difference between his elbow and his @ss.

    Yes, but do you want to be the guy fixing his mistakes, if this is the normal hiring profile?

    Experienced techs for 15-18 ? Maybe, that is why the few responses.

    Thats the NAS MO, there are a few other outfits following the "lead", simple business plan;

    1-get rid of most tenure techs
    2-hire young expendable,inexperience warm bodies
    3-have one or two old timers babysit and walk through the youngsters

    Here we come retailers, fasten your seat belts, we are not the best but we are cheap

    Perhaps I don't understand Kentucky's licensing...


    I was under the impression to get a Journeyman’s license, you had to have at LEAST 5 years experience and take a state board test to get it. At least that is what I have been told it takes for a Journeyman’s license for an electrican in Indiana.

    That maybe great money in that area,don't knock it. From the looks of it they are not looking for young guys. Although they say minimum two years they ask for some techs with serious knowledge of the trade. Not sure why the service side is paid more then the install crew. Just remember, you always get what you pay for. Sounds like a pretty sound company. I guess if you live in the area and are looking for a job it can be a good place to start.
    You need to put the phone down and get back to work!

    I have been seeing this Business Plan being implemented in many locations. 15-18 bucks an hour to me is a slap in the face. No wonder no one is interested. As long as someone is willing to work for sub-par wages it will continue. This trade has always had provided good wages, but somehow things are a changin.

    If you guys think 15-18 is low, I'd advise you not to come down to FL any time soon.

    I can see why this is in play.

    A young, inexperienced guy won't know how to fix the units. So, he will feel completely comfortable pushing replacements, instead. The boss never hears, "they don't need a new unit, I can fix it for only $xxx.xx."

    The boss wants to hear, "I just sold another whole new system, my third this week!" like the kid has just done something wonderful.

    They should stop calling these guys techs. Just call them salesmen. Period.

    So owners don't want the headache of an old system they haven't been messing with, at least that's what I've noticed here in Washington state, they want something that they handle from brand new before they warranty the work

    around here owners want to keep using the same old equipment, I've quoted repairs that cost few hundred bucks less than replacement, 90% of the time they go with the repairs.cause the bad economy many owners penny pinch big time.
